Short introduction describing any previous activities:
RDA Europe 4 and EOSC Future have been running activities to manage small grants programmes for individuals over the course of a project. They have proved to be an effective way of developing community specific engagement strategies and leveraging connections to under-represented disciplines and other areas of data management. Experience has been gained in terms of managing the calls to fine-tune them to the current needs of the community and the outputs had a significant impact on contributing to RDA activities and in different context such as the European Open Science Cloud.
These effort require a continuous dialogue with the community and consolidated ways to incorporate feedback.
